Iginla for Malkin

If Calgary were to decide to rebuild (for whatever reason) while Pittsburgh were wanting to push for the cup, what would you think about a deal centered around Malkin for Iginla?

- Iginla and Crosby would be an effective combo

I know that Calgary will never trade their captain, but what would the deal look like?

We can't and couldn't afford Malkin's salary. Calgary is 1.4 mill over the cap, and Malkin makes something like.... 8.7 mill starting this season.

I'd be happy to get Iginla out of the West, that guy makes the Sharks his *****

Because Malkin isn't good enough to help push for a Cup run?

You know, I can't believe you were the first to point that out.

If Pittsburgh was going to make a Cup run, I think they would look at improving their defense and goaltending (dealing Fleury for a veteran #1) first before dealing Malkin.

Fleury was definitely the least of their problems in that series. He played great and only has potential to get better.

Definitely want to trade the 23 year old goaltender with a 40 win season and a trip to the Cup Finals right after signing the 7 year contract. Why wouldn't you?

Starting next season. Crosby's 8.7 kicks in this year, Malkin's still at 3.85 million.


I also wouldn't do Iginla for Malkin. I'd really prefer to have Malkin over the next 6 years in his mid-20s, than Iginla's 30s for the remainder of his contract. I don't think Calgary really wants to either. If we're just talking value, yes, they're pretty close, depending on how you rate future potential.

Think twice, post once. Please.

No motivation whatsoever for either team.

Even though it does make some sense, it would be GM suicide in a Canadian hockey town like Calgary.

Imagine the backlash in Calgary if (when?) Iginla lifts the Cup in a Penguins uniform?

The NHL marketing brass would love to have Iginla in an American city though I think.

Well said back there
And you have to also remember Gonchar-Malkin thing. Sergei Go-Go has been helping Malkin alot and they are probably very close friends.

This isn't even entertaining to talk about. This makes no sense whatsoever for either franchise.

Well he said if the Flames had to rebuild......

Still, though...It's not too often when a team rebuilding gets the better player in the deal. If Iginla were to be traded to Pitt this season (maybe at the deadline) my guess is that it would be for Staal and maybe Sydor to make the salaries work.....still though, doesn't make too much sense, It's not like Iginla is 37 years old and ready to retire....The flames could go through a full rebuild with him still there....

The thing I don't understand is why everyone keeps throwing Malkin into all these wacky deals. Pittsburgh extended him FOREVER and paid him "Crosby money" because they intend to KEEP him and build around him. This would make a hell of a lot more sense if you replace Malkin with the likes of Staal, and then some other hot garbage just to salary dump or whatever.

Why would Pittsburgh trade for an older player when I honestly don't see much difference in either person's offensive productivity potential

How can the Flames afford Malkin?

If the Flames could take on Malkin, this would be a win for them in my opinion
